Time to change irons


Recommended Posts

I'm also in the market for a "new" set of irons. I'm gonna go the eBay route but I've narrowed it down to srixon 545s cobra flyz+ and mizuno mp54. I've not hit the flyzs. Anyone have any input or the cobras or 54s? The 545s are the clear front runner right now.

If you are a 5 to 20 Hcap, and want new irons, may I suggest the cobra F6 irons.  Not only are they affordable ($799) but they can help you work the ball.

Just today I was fitted for Ping G30's .... I had it down to Srixon and Ping .... Surprisingly it wasn't even close per the fitter.

 

I do recommend a fitting. This was my first time, I was nervous, but I can't argue with results, I was hitting 7 iron 165. My current clubs that's my 6. Very excited to gain yardage

Pings are great! I like the clean look of the Srixons but those Pings are a bit more forgiving and can't beat their durability.

The only thing I always keep in mind with trying irons is the lofts of the irons - when I went from RSI2 to MP25 I was just happy to see similar distances due to better fitting shaft since the MP lofts are an easy club or so weaker.

I actually recently went old-school with my irons. The course I play most often is a windy track. Very windy. It can be calm in the parking lot, but there will be a 2-club wind out on the course. So I went a little old-school hoping to actually lower flight a little bit and give me some versatility and trajectory control, as well as a slightly lower trajectory anyway. I bought an old used set of Golfsmith Tour Cavities, dipped them in acid so they turned black, custom paint-filled them, then put my Axe TourX graphites in them and went to work. Pretty happy with the results. Are they the most forgiving? No, but that's not what I was after. But...they are forgiving enough. A pretty forgiving head with some trajectory control available. And they look sharp dressed in black...

Just got back from the fitting with a new set of iron's and 3 wood. Got fitted for the Nike Vapor Fly Pro irons in x stiff KBS tour C-tapers. They slightly out performed the Mizuno jpx 850 forged. I played a bit hard to get at the end and got them to throw in a Nike Vapor Fly 3 wood thrown in at no extra cost! Really happy with my fitting and the clubs that I got.

You need to post pics of them because that sounds neat as heck.

The finish does fade a bit, and mine are due for a re-finish after a full season's play. I may get a bottle of the sealant and try it on them to see if it helps protect the finish any better when I do decide to do the refinish. The only thing I'll do different is this time I won't pull the shafts, I will just hold the heads in the acid with the shaft. I do have a wire jig just for the purpose, so my hands weren't in the acid.

Ask and you shall receive. It's actually an easy process, maybe just a little time-consuming. But worth it!

Looks good what did you use for acid Muratic Acid?

I actually don't know what kind of acid it is, the package doesn't say. I bought some stainless steel blackener from caswellplating.com from their antiquing section. It's easy to use. I sand-blasted the heads, blew them off with air, dipped them in some alcohol to clean them, dipped them in pure water to wash that off, then a 3-4 minute bath in the acid. Let them drip back into the acid bucket, put them on a towel to dry for 20 min, then repeated the process. After the 3rd dip and drying, I sprayed them with WD-40. And after that dried I did the paint fill.
